A 22-year-old man on Sunday was arrested on suspicion of two counts of felony harassment after he allegedly threatened to cut or stab a Starbucks employee in downtown Olympia.
About 10 a.m. Sunday, Olympia police responded to the Starbucks in the 500 block of Capitol Way South after the threat was made.
According to charging documents:
An employee sold the man a cup of coffee, then was told he had fallen asleep in a corner booth. The employee woke him up and told him that he wasn’t allowed to sleep in the store. Minutes later, the store manager also checked on the man and woke him up again. That’s when he allegedly “verbally threatened” the manager, saying “she would get cut or stabbed” if he was woken up again.
During the arrest, Olympia police saw a “silver-colored folding knife” on the table in front of the man. Employees also described it as an “open lock blade knife.”
